Does anyone experience a blocked nose at night that keeps you awake? I’ve been to doctors, and I’ve tried anti-allergy sprays, the nasal strips, and the nose clips, but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have a remedy that works?

  • Visit an Ear Nose Throat specialist. There’s so many things they can do and it’s worth the effort

  • Get a referral to an ENT who may be able to provide you with tailored advice

  • My experience is to stay as much as possible away from spray as they’re kind of addictive. Try to prevent rebound congestion, use over-the-counter decongestant nasal sprays for no more than five days in a row, with as few doses as possible each day.
    Better to find natural remedies;
    * Add Moisture to the Air With a Humidifier or Vaporizer
    * Rinse With a Neti Pot and Saline Solution
    * Hydrate and Soothe With Warm Soups and Teas
    * Boost Your Immune System With Vitamins and Herbs
    * Apply Hot or Cold Packs to Congested Sinuses
    * Eat or Inhale the Steam From Some Garlic Cloves
    * Put an extra pillow or two under your head, as this will help drain your sinuses.
    * Put an onion cut in half beside your bed

  • Humidifier or alleviate head a tad when sleeping?

  • Yes- mine is related to dust mites. Could you try allergy testing to see what you react to? I also use fess spray if I’m awake and that helps

  • Is this because of cold? Maybe need some humidifier?
